Small cut on the shaft of penis while shaving. Danger in unprotected sex?

hi, after shaving, i made a small cut on the base/shaft of my penis, its very small and didnt bleed much at the time. I am just curious if i am in any danger if i have unprotected sex with my partner within the next few hours? will it help at all if it is protected, as the condom will most likely not cover the cut. thanks

Hi,
If your partner is having any STD then risk of having infection spread to you is likely as base of shaft may not covered with condom and so might come in contact with her genital parts.
Ok and take care.

Hi, I sustained a small cut on the shaft of my penis a month or two ago. For a while it would heal and then open up again after intercourse or masturbation; however, I stopped having sex and masturbating for a few days and it closed up, but will not go away. I went to a dermatologist for an unrelated issue and showed it to him and he told me that it may been a small bacterial infection, but was nothing to worry about. He instructed me to put aquaphor on it, which I have been doing, and while it does get better some days, it will not go away. Any idea on what this could be and how I can treat it?

Hi, I am considering having laser hair removal, am HIV+ and currently on medication, but fit and healthy. Is there any reason why I would not be advised to have the procedure? I have not told the clinician of my status nor do I plan to, however are there any risks associated with the procedure or could it have an adverse effect due to the medications?

I m worried that I got HIV or some other STD s because I m now experiencing minor Aches, pain in fingers of my hand and tingy ness and numbness sometimes. I did in-home Ora quick test and it resulted in negative but still worried as I m in Window period.

uhm, Heya... i find it hard to believe i'm doing this, but: I'm an 18 year old male, about 1.90m tall.. today my girlfriend came over and had condoms with her, thinking that we could do something that none of us have done before (if you catch my drift), normaly i have an errection everytime we're kissing and getting a bit "kinky", but when i tried to put the condom on, or even reach for it, my errection just vanished, each time... is it all in my mind or is there something i can do to overcome this shyness problem? (ps. this took me completley by suprise and everything)
